I have a scar on my face from where grease spattered on me when I was cooking dinner one evening. Can the uneven scarred skin be removed by dermabrasion?
Scar revision of the face is a procedure that I enjoy very much but, is also a procedure with significant limitations. The results of scar revision will depend on the extent of your scarring and the way your face has healed previously. Surgical excision of previous facial scarring is the first step in revision and post operative dermabrasion or laser resurfacing are two very good procedures to help improve the results of your surgery. Meticulous skin care would be the final step to insure the best results from your scar revision.
